  1. The iMessage fix also stopped working on the older of my two MacPros last week. On the newer one from 2007 it is still working and I am afraid to sign out and fear I won't be able to sign in again.
  2. It finally works on both MacPros. I apologize, I should have followed the specific instructions for the outdated MacPros from 2006/2007 on Jabbawoks site precisely.
  3. It stopped working on the MacPro 1,1 (2006) after several days Correction: After a second reboot it is active again on the older 2006 model. Not sure whether it will remain stable.
  4. I tried it now on a second Mac Pro (at work). This time, the 2,1 model from 2007. Here, I cannot sign in (Chameleon 2.2 svn 2181. It worked twice for a period of less then 1-2 minutes, after which I was "kicked out". Will be interesting to see what the status will be on the 2006 MacPro when I get home.
  5. iMessage unexpectedly started working on my MacPro 1,1 (2006) last Friday. The vulture knows why. It remains active even after reboot with chameleon 2.2svn r2181. Nice! I had a credit card registered before and re-registered the same card sometime last week. I cannot exclude that this did the trick, but it seems rather odd.
  6. I could briefly sign into iMessage, exchanged actually a few messages and then a dialog appeared that iMessage cannot be used and I was back where I started this morning. Subsequent attempts to login failed although I did not change anything current smbios.plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMSystemboard</key> <string>Mac-F4208DC8</string> <key>SMbiosdate</key> <string>07/02/07</string> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Computer, Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP21.ZZZ.YYYY.{censored}.1234512345</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F4208DC8</string> <key>SMcputype</key> <string>1026</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>Mac Pro</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>Apple Computer, Inc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro2,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>C11DIGITSNO</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> </plist> Just happened again. I was briefly signed in and then kicked out within seconds (getting the contact support message). I will save this and try to replace it with a smbioplist for MacPro 3,1 generated with chameleon wizard. This did not help (contact support message again). What is odd is that a few days ago, PlatformUUID changed with changes to smbios.plist. Since the last two days, it seems stable and does not change anymore (not sure what caused this earlier). I now find that PlatformUUID changes when I include a key for the SystemID in org.chameleon.Boot.plist . Apparently, this should not be done on a real Mac
  7. Thanks. I went to voodooprojects.org, but did not find this discussion. I seem to have solved the problem with the changing PlatformUUID, but imessage still does not work. Instead of <key>SMSystemboard</key> <string>Mac-F4208DC8</string> my smbios.plist contained <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F4208DC8</string> I do not remember how this entry was changed. The change back to <key>SMSystemboard</key> (as in the original "Extra" from provided by http://www.jabbawok.net/?p=47) brought back the original PlatformUUID. My smbios.plist is now <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMSystemboard</key> <string>Mac-F4208DC8</string> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP31.XXZ.00XX.X05.0XXXXXXXX0</string> <key>SMcputype</key> <string>1026</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>C11DIGITSNO</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> </plist>
  8. Thanks for your help! I found that MacPro 2,1 originates from an smbios.plist that was provided by http://www.jabbawok.net/?p=47 together with the instructions, how to install 10.8 on MacPros from 2006/2007. I replaced the entry in this smbios.plist with MacPro3,1, but this did not change anything. I will now clear the NVRAM and start over with the new smbios.plist. I just did $nvram -c reboot PlatformUUID remains the same. Rebooting this machine into OSX 10.7.2 of another HardDisk results in a different PlatformUUID, while MLB is unchanged. Another boot into 10.8.2 and that PlatformUUID is the same as it was before looking at OSX 10.7.2. Presumably, the change in PlatformUUID depended on the versions of chameleon that I used before (2.2 svn 2168, 2171 and 2172: therefore, two changes for going to 2171 and then 2172). Anyway, the problem with iMessage is still not solved for me. Despite having MacPro3,1 in smbios.plist now.

PPPS: Now the result of ioreg -lw0 | grep PlatformUUID changes with every restart of 10.8.2 when I reenter PlatformUUID into org.chameleon.Boot.plist as <key>SystemId</key> <string>PlatformUUID</string>
  9. Adding credit card info does not solve this for me. Also, the output of ioreg -lw0 | grep PlatformUUID in terminal changes occasionally (already twice since Tuesday). It should remain the same, not? I have a recent MBP (2011) and two MacMini, late 2009 and late 2012, which work with the same Apple_ID. I can sign in and out without problems with these and with an iPhone 4S, ios 6.01, (all with the same apple_id). PS: It worked for me for a brief time last Monday. Since Monday evening I get "contact support" most of the time, but sometimes it just says that its currently not possible to sign in (while it works on all systems, but this hacked MacPro from 2006).
